  • Sunday Health Reform Vote | Day In Washington
    would not heal No one evaluated her for this because they were concerned with getting her blood sugar under control Every ER visit had notations of her unhealing sores but provided no treatment Eventually she insisted that the doctor look at the worsening sores on her foot Once the doctor saw her foot she was immediately admitted and the next day her leg was amputated below the knee The surgeon could not remove all of the leg that needed to be removed and wanted to wait a few days because it would be too much of a shock to her system The sores were so bad that even with the amputation osteomyelitis had set in and before the next surgery could be performed she died Prior to her death there was a record of 52 ER visits and 14 inpatient visits in 18 months Neither the hospitals nor the surgeon will be paid for their services because there was no Medicaid coverage before her death Access to affordable health care would have enabled her to manage her diabetes would have saved her life and two children would their mother The legislation isn t perfect the system isn t perfect and this may not solve all of our health care issues but this isn t about legislation or systems or issues it is about people It is about people who are dying And I m willing to accept a partially right answer than no answer at all But that is a decision that each person will have to make for themselves Don t listen to the pundits and experts and legislators or even me Make your own decision Read the bill and call your legislator Tags Capitol disabilty health health care reform Senate vote Post navigation Federal Government Hiring Expo April
